That One CD

That one damn CD, he played it endlessly. He left in the CD player when he moved out. She found the case in the garbage, right on top of the broken crystal vase and the remains of the snow globe he’d gotten her for their first Valentine’s day together. She found it almost poetic. Certainly where it belonged, too bad he forgot that stupid box of useless and tattered comic books from his childhood. She had half a mind to burn the damn things and dump the ashes on his new car. She had promised herself to take the high road, so she wouldn’t do that. Oh how she wanted to, but she dared not. Instead, she tied a string to the CD and hung it from the plant in the walkway outside of their apartment. He would get the message when he came to pick up the last of his things. She would be lounging by the pool pretending not to cry behind her sunglasses.

Lil Sady Peep

Soooo, I was going to try and write a little story about Lil Sady Peep counting her sheep, trying not to lose them and how each time she tried, she’d fall asleep, but I got drunk last night for the first time in ages. Yes, I know some of you find that rather shocking, but its true. Naturally it was tequila, but I’ve been on some new medications for the past few months and when my alarm went off reminding me to take said medicine at the same time I take it every night…well, my drunk ass took it. THAT was a bad idea. Those meds did not pair well with tequila and I spent about an hour throwing up, when I should have been crawling into bed. I did eventually make it to bed and I managed to stay hydrated through the night. This morning? Well, I don’t have the headache that usually accompanies a hangover, I merely have a fog. So, there shall be no story about lil Sady Peep and her silly sheep. You get a picture of a super sexy outfit from {le fil casse} that you can find at Loot Box and some hair from MINA , one of many you will find at the Hair Fair.
On that note, I wish you all a wonderful Sunday…and if its a holiday weekend for you, I hope you will stay safe….and hydrated. *chuckles*

Most Girls

“You know some days you feel so good in your own skin
But it’s okay if you wanna change the body that you came in
‘Cause you look greatest when you feel like a damn queen
We’re all just playing a game in a way, trying to win at life”
Hailee Steinfeld – Most Girls

If you’re a girl, you’ve had to have heard it at least once in your life, “You’re not like most girls.” Of course, I’m not. We’re all different. There are some common factors though and I think that proves true in Second Life more than anywhere else, because in SL most girls want their avatar to be the epitome of beauty as they see it. Oh sure, there are lots of us looking around at other girls in SL thinking, “WTF?” Truth be told, they either love the way they look or they’re simply having fun with their avatar and probably change their avatars regularly. Even if we think an avatar is outdated with bling and/or flexi hair/clothes…a system body/head…perhaps those girls simply don’t like the look of mesh or maybe their computers can’t handle it. Its not for me to say and sure, I’m guilty of giggling with my friends about other avatars, but at the end of the day…who is to say they’re not giggling at us? I’m not trying to make anyone feel guilty for the giggles, so long as those giggles and remarks are kept among friends. I’m not even saying that I won’t do it anymore, because I know I will. What I am saying is that we all have something about our avatars that someone else doesn’t like, but so long as we’re happy with ourselves…our avatars…our representations in a virtual world…THAT is what matters the most, isn’t it? So, if you have a tall thin avatar that resembles an anorexic runway model in the real world, but you love it…good for you and don’t you let anyone change your mind about that. If you have the enormous boobs and butt with the itty bitty waist, but you love it…good. There’s enough body shaming in the real world. Don’t you dare let anyone tell you that your avatar isn’t right, if YOU love it. Now, if you don’t love it…might I suggest you peruse some blogs and create a look you will love? *grins* Oh, just go enjoy the song, do some shopping, and laugh…it is Friday after all…hell, have a drink or five. Live your life and stop worrying about what most girls and doing and be you. ♥

Pug Life

Alright, get ready for a journey down the rabbit hole of Sady’s mind, once again, because this post is all about the stuff and how my mind put it all together…I’m just going to write stream of consciousness here, soooo…buckle your seat belts, its going to be a helluva ride!
Okay, so I have three pictures to show you, because I’ve got soooo much to go over with you! First off, let me mention the five main designers I’m trying to showcase here. We’ve got super cute hair from Mina at FaMESHed, a rad tattoo from RedFish at Kinky, a super sexy outfit from le fil casse for the Arcade, some of Bueno’s arcade set, AND some of the She Pop Band Set that unKindness released recently at REWIND! It really wasn’t my intention to mix soooo many great designers into one scene, but sometimes things just fall together that way, ya know?
Okay, so this first picture *points below* is the whole scene with all the stuff, me, and lots of little extras I gave the my Pug Life scene. If you’re going to do a post called PugLife, you gotta have some pugs, right? So, purple and black are the base colors, but I couldn’t stop there…I had to add others. So, this is a smorgasbord of stuff that I really thought worked well together. It might be a bit cluttery for some, but I have yet to tear down this scene, because I like it sooo much! Oh and I have a weakness for signs, especially neon for some reason. I have no explanation for it and none in real life, but as Josh pointed out. Its not really that easy to own a lot of neon in real life, is it? I dunno, I know I don’t have any, never have. Okay, okay, I like shiny things, sue me!

pug life2

So, one of the things I did was use pieces from the She Pop Band Set, that unKindness released recently at REWIND, in a different way. I saw the drum set and thought it would make the perfect way to display my MishMish pugs! Naturally that led me to slap the keyboard and guitar on the wall. Music is a huge part of my life, but I’ve got not musical talents whatsoever! I’m all about thinking outside the box…actually, I’m not sure I know how to think inside the box. *laughs*
You’ll also notice the gorgeous outfit I’m wearing and by sharing multiple pictures you can see it from other angles, as well as the sweet little tattoo that runs up and down both my legs, front and back. Plus, how freaking adorable is this hair?!?!?! I know, I know…too freaking cute!

pug life3

I just couldn’t decide which picture best showcased everything I wanted to show you, so I decided it was time for multiples. I haven’t done multiple pics in a while and rarely does more than one show up on my Flickr page. However, this time will be different. I’m going to take the chance and post all three this time around, because I really want you everyone to see all this good stuff. Maybe I’m crazy…yeah, okay, we know I am…its even been certified…I know…you must be shocked. *laughs*
Yeah, so I’ve rambled on mindlessly about all the awesome stuff I’m wanting to show off and its not too often that I go on and on about the photos and the stuff this way…or cram so much into one post, but c’mon, you gotta admit, its pretty awesome, right? Oh just be nice and agree, cuz I’m excited!

Talk Derby to Me

Talk Derby to Me

Once upon a time…like a decade plus ago, I was involved with the local roller derby girls in my real life. Oh don’t be daft, my ass was not a derby girl. Let me explain. I was editor of my college newspaper, so I was always on the hunt for a good story that the readers might find interesting. Well, it just so happened that my boss’s daughter was the captain of the new local roller derby team. I scheduled an interview and before I knew it I was hooked. I was going to all of their matches and a my assistant editor had joined up! It was a brutal, but incredibly sexy sport.
I was telling Josh about it when I was taking this picture and he didn’t anything about it. So, I went to YouTube in search of some examples and it seems the rules have changed quite a bit since my days of hanging out with derby girls. However, in the event that you, too, are not aware of what it is or would just like to check it out, I’ve found a video of highlights that I enjoyed called Roller Derby-The Mad Whirl!  Perhaps, you will, too. Either way, I’m loving all the skating pictures that are about on the blogs and Flickr at the moment, because it is really taking me down a pretty awesome memory lane. So, here’s the video. If you watch it, you’ll probably see where I got the title for this post.

Chains

“You got me in chains, you got me in chains for your love
But, I wouldn’t change, no I wouldn’t change this love”
Nick Jonas Chains

I’ve had this pose from RACK Poses for a while and just never found the right way to use it, but when I saw this Adorea Strappy by {le fil casse}, I knew immediately I was finally going to break out the chains. So, I took the picture having absolutely no idea what I was going to say about it. What could I possibly write to go with this photo without sounding pornographic. While that is a thought and certainly not something I’m completely opposed to, it really wasn’t the direction I wanted to go. Lo and behold, I was out running errands and heard Chains on the radio. I immediately knew I had my song, because the chorus fits how I feel about Josh so well. The rest would be more from him to me, but the song is pretty good. I had no idea at the time that it was by one of the Jonas brothers, but ya know what? I don’t care. I’ll admit it, there are quite a few pop songs out there by artists I don’t necessarily consider myself a fan of that do some pretty good songs from time to time and this is one of them.
So there ya have it…I made a kinky looking picture into a dorky post. Welcome to my life and pray for Josh, because he has to deal with this crazy head of mine.

A Series of Scenes

When I look back on various memories from my 10+yrs in Second Life, I so often see it like a scene from a movie….much like watching a screen, but in a dream. I can’t know if that made any sense, but I’m trying to explain the connection between the human and the avatar, the real world and the virtual…and how truly woven they are. How we take photographs and those memories are earmarked in our personal book of time. In a world filled with ever changing images, I think photographs should mean something. Make sure to earmark the best of times, and even the raw emotion behind the worst.

smell the roses2

I find myself doubly blessed by the fabric of my two worlds crossing, in even the remotest way. I want to remember this day. I won’t go into all the reasons why, but I will tell you that I had such a pleasant time putting this scene together. I had someone with me, to keep me company and to help keep me focused. We had wonderful conversations and I managed to get my picture. I knew exactly what I wanted, because the minute I saw the offerings of Fancy Decor and unKindness at the 5th Anniversary of FaMESHed, I knew I was about to create the perfect addition to my home. While I actually built the scene elsewhere, I know this is coming home with me. Adding little additions that I’ve collected along the way. Yes, I think this will be a day to remember.

smell the roses

I had to be dressed in red, because my heart was simply too full to wear any other color. You have to admit I’m glowing just a bit…only thing missing is the horns…*laughs*

Another great thing about this photo is that I get to show off just a sampling of what FaMESHed has to offer on their 5th Anniversary which I’ve had the distinct honor to be part of as one of the new liaisons.  I have a whole new respect for all event organizers and their teams. And now, having the inside track…I can tell you that something HUGE is coming…oh, I can’t tell you what it is…*laughs*…you’ll just have to wait and see.♥
